by Rikki Kazmierowicz

Ever heard of medifast? It is a weight loss program, that works really well for people! My mother uses it every now and then. Here is a recipe for the bars, just like medifast but easier, and cheaper!


  • 1 Egg white
  • ½ Cups Applesauce
  • ½ Cups Sugar free maple syrup
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • ¼ Cups Dried cranberries
  • 1 ¾ Cups Quick oats
  • 2 Scoops vanilla protein powder
  • ¾ Cups Dried nonfat milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ½ Teaspoons Salt
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Gather your ingredients! And thanks to Joan, for her recipe! These are the "Joan Bars" :)

    Step 2

    Stir together wet ingredients, and then dump in your protein powder.

    Step 3

    Soak your dried cranberries in hot water for about 5 minutes, then drain the water.

    Step 4

    Then stir the powdered milk, oats, and cranberries into the rest of the batter!

    Step 5

    Add your salt, vanilla and cinnamon!

    Step 6

    Pour evenly in a greased 8x8 baking dish. Bake for about 15 minutes!

    Step 7

    Allow bars 5 minutes to cool. Cut into 10 slices. :)

    Step 8

    Each bar is only 118 calories and packs 8.3 grams of protein!

    Step 9

    Store in plastic baggies, keep in the fridge and they'll last for about a week!

    Step 10

    I took some fancy dancy pictures. :)

    Step 11

    My mom says these are way better than her diet bars. 👍 Yes!

    Step 12

    Ooo so yummy.

    Step 13
